Our first session at ResearchED English and MFL, Oxford was called Wars and Waste to highlight two key ideas:
1 The lack of agreement and open conflict regarding the best ways to teach reading;
2 The immense waste this has created in time, money, and quality of life.
The session is divided into three sections:
1 The extent of illiteracy;
2 The reasons for this;
3 The two main approaches to teaching reading, and why one is demonstrably superior to the other.
